Bengaluru: The ‘march to Athmakur’ is resulting in a face-off between Naidus and Reddys in Andhra Pradesh once extra. The Chandrababu Naidu-led TDP, which appears to be like to maintain recovered from the most humiliating defeat within the sizzling Assembly and Lok Sabha elections, has taken the ruling YSRCP of Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy head on, alleging worthy-scale and systematic harassment of its cadre by the government.
By combating the TDP cadre from marching to Athmakur advance Guntur, where the alleged atrocities took space, the Jagan government has given sufficient airtime to TDP, which used to be highly demoralised after the acute drubbing at polls.
Interestingly, Naidu’s son Nara Lokesh, who had disappeared from the final public study after a humiliating defeat in his maiden Assembly election, has re-appeared, leading the TDP march against the YSRCP.
Ground experiences point out that their fight is liable to proceed within the years to reach.
With this most up-to-date face-off, the 35-twelve months-ragged contention between the YSR family and Chandrababu Naidu’s family has reach to the fore all all over again.
Now not many at the new time are responsive to the actual fact that the unhurried Dr. YS Rajasekhara Reddy and Chandrababu Naidu had entered the Andhra Pradesh Assembly together in 1978 on Congress birthday celebration tickets. Both had been made junior ministers within the T Anjaiah government on the same day. They had a simply rapport and shared a healthy within most relationship till Naidu stop the Congress to hitch his accomplice’s father after which chief minister NT Rama Rao’s Telugu Desam Occasion (TDP) in 1984.
Around the same time, YSR grew to become the youngest president of Andhra Pradesh Congress. He took on the NTR government and chums-grew to become-foes in Andhra politics.
The contention between Reddy and Naidu used to be not as intense between 1989 and 1999 since YSR used to be an MP in Fresh Delhi. In 1999, he grew to become leader of the opposition within the inform assembly at some level of Naidu’s 2nd term somewhat than labor. Naidu used to be at the zenith of his energy them, far flung controlling the Atal Bihari Vajpayee-led NDA government in Fresh Delhi.
But a feisty YSR did not lose self perception. He took Naidu head on and slayed him within the 2004 elections. It used to be an emphatic victory for both YSR and the Congress. A jumpy Naidu took months to enhance from that defeat and grew to become bitter. YSR returned to energy all all over again in 2009 and many had written off Naidu in Andhra politics.
Between 2004 and 2009, Naidu attacked YSR and his son Jaganmohan Reddy nearly each day, calling them nasty and prison. YSR moreover hit reduction at Naidu in his inimitable potential.
After YSR’s tragic loss of life in a helicopter crash in September 2009, the once-highly efficient and modern Andhra Pradesh descended into chaos. Exploiting that length of anarchy, Ample Chandrashekar Rao of the TRS successfully divided the inform, creating Telangana in 2014. After his father’s loss of life, an offended Jagan left the Congress to design his dangle birthday celebration YSR Congress Occasion to maintain interaction on the TDP. He alleged that the Congress had betrayed him and YSR followers. Sensing that the unhurried YSR’s son could presumably well well pose a large inform to him within the long disappear, Naidu allegedly helped the Congress excessive show in Fresh Delhi to “repair” him in a disproportionate asset cases in 2012. A wounded Jagan swore revenge from a Hyderabad prison.
Within the 2014 Assembly and Lok Sabha elections, Naidu surprisingly returned to energy within the truncated inform. A jumpy Jagan’s woes continued for one other five years below Naidu.
Nonetheless, Jagan managed to keep a simply relationship with the Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre and the exit of Naidu from the NDA in 2018 helped the YSRCP in bouncing reduction.
Concentrated on finest Naidu and his son Lokesh, Jagan led a bright fight against the TDP. It paid off handsomely, making sure a expansive seize for YSRCP within the Assembly and Lok Sabha elections in Might maybe maybe this twelve months.
After coming to energy, Jagan promised birthday celebration cadre that he would investigate the alleged atrocities committed by the TDP against them at some level of Naidu’s rule.
That pent-up anger is popping out now and the contention does not appear to be ending anytime rapidly. Naidu, 70, has vowed to proceed the fight, telling his birthday celebration men that his son would proceed to fight after him. His rival Jagan Mohan Reddy is exclusively 46 years ragged and son Nara Lokesh is exclusively 36 years ragged. It has raised hopes on each facet, even though most agree that Nara Lokesh just isn’t any match for Jagan.
